The Week

The Week: October 24, 2014

Lately I’ve taken a little bit of a hiatus from blogging. For someone who spends all day writing as part of their career, I find that sometimes it’s important to step back and remember why I enjoy stringing words together so much. And then one morning I just wake up, itching to start scribbling something new, click-clacking on my keyboard to share a new adventure…

The Week: September 19, 2014

While I was out of town last week it seems that autumn crept up on Iowa and I couldn’t be happier. While I’m out enjoying the changing leaves, shopping the Farmers’ Market for my fall favorites and curling up with a good book this weekend, here’s a few of my favorite bits of Internet from this past week…

The Week: September 5, 2014

I can hardly to believe that autumn is just around the corner, but I’m starting to feel little signs of it everywhere. A few golden-hued leaves, a crisper chill in the mornings and advertisements for any and all things pumpkin. Next week I’ll be taking some time to recharge adventuring out East and visiting family (stay tuned!), but in the meantime, here are my favorite bits of Internet from the last week…

The Week: August 29, 2014

It’s been a rainy, gloomy kind of week so I’m hoping for some sunshine this long weekend. I’ve got a few fun things planned (and maybe even a mini road trip), but more on those later. In the meantime and while I’m off adventuring, here are my favorite bits of Internet from this week…

The Week: August 15, 2014

After a work week full of sunny days, it looks like it might rain all weekend, which would be a huge bummer since I was hoping for an impulsive Iowa road trip. While I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a cloudless Saturday and Sunday, here are my favorite bits of Internet from this week…

It’s definitely been one of those weeks where I’m desperate for the weekend. While I have no major plans, I’m hoping to enjoy some sunshine and maybe an ice cream cone (or two). I’m working on some exciting new features for Olio in Iowa so stay tuned! For now though, you can follow Olio on Twitter and to tide you over until Monday, here are my favorite bits of Internet from this week…

This week I kicked off training for the Des Moines half marathon and started taking a few classes at Power Life Yoga downtown—to say I’m sore would be an understatement. This weekend I plan to spend a lot of time enjoying the gorgeous cooler weather, adventuring with friends and catching up on some reading. But for now, here are a few of my favorite bits of Internet from this week…

After spending a few days in Kansas City for work, I’m back in Des Moines and excited to spend a few days enjoying summer in my little city—patio drinks, a trip to the “beach” and maybe even a bit of sunburn. But in the meantime, here are my favorite bits of Internet from the past week…

Since the beginning of the month, things have been a little crazy. With the holiday weekend, friends visiting, vacation time and work travel, I’m excited to have a weekend to relax and enjoy a class at the Des Moines Art Center (more on that later). But in the meantime, here are my favorite bits of Internet from this past week…

Since I’ve been on vacation in Michigan for the past week, I haven’t spent a lot (read: hardly any) time behind my computer. So instead of the best of the Internet this week, here’s a photo of Cooper the Dog and his favorite summer treat: raspberries.
